The topic: This and that
My back is feeling a little better today. I overdid Monday and when my sciatica acts up, sitting for any length of time is killer. My right butt cheek just starts screaming. Prolly wouldn't be as loud if I lost some of this excess fat I carry with me wherever I go. But then it just keeps hurting. I've found that walking like a duck with my buttocks sticking out seems to help a little. But it isn't pretty.
I pretty much took it easy yesterday. My new laptop came in and I waited a while to hook it up, savoring the fact it's here. Then I got it hooked up to the internet and plugged into the wall. I couldn't get it connected to my LAN. I figure I'll just call one of the tech numbers I've got. Let's see, there's CostCo, Dell and Microsoft. I'm sure one of them will be able to help. I've not called yet because I'm afraid I'll get one of the techs who lives in India or some such outsourced tech place and I won't be able to understand them and I'll be here so long on the phone that my right butt cheek will start singing the blues.
It was nice getting all of the filing caught up on Monday, now I have bills to enter, some to pay and then I'll be caught up. Wow, what a concept. Caught up with my work. It hasn't been that way since last year. I wonder how it will feel?
The work I've got won't even take two hours to do. So what have I done this morning?
Well, I washed the dining room window, for one (if you watch the occasional cam, you might have seen me). I made the bed. Straightened out the covers on the sofas in the family room. I've got a load of towels in the washer. I changed the towel covering Brian's files (cats piss on it). Got the dishwasher emptied. Made Brian's lunch. Took some pictures of a grackle/crow/obnoxious bird in the plum tree and Richie trying his best to get to it. Took some pictures of the clouds coming in to make a white day. Made the bed. Washed my dresser mirrors. Read the newspaper. Talked to my mom on the phone. Checked the cell minutes online. Petted some cats. Cleaned up a nice sizable barf which looked to have a primary ingredient of white fur. Read Lair's blog. (The only one I read with any regularity.) Cleaned all of the kitchen counters. I added the cat whiskers stacked on top of the television in my cat whisker collection bag. I gave Handsome an l-lysine tablet (he started to drool again). I guess I did everything I could to not have to sit down here do the paperwork. Which won't take that long. *sigh* I don't know why I procrastinate about it.
I guess I could go brush my teeth. And clean the litterboxes. That might give me a few more minutes to keep from doing what should already have been done.
I know, I'll brush my teeth, get this loathed paperwork off of my desk, then do the litterboxes. And if my butt cheek is feeling normal, I'll call tech support. Wish me luck. I'm really not good with foreign accents.
